Your Ultimate Easter Shopping List For 2020

Your Ultimate Easter Shopping List For 2020

The ultimate easter shopping list looks a little different this year. Many of us have had to cancel planned holidays and we’re not going to be getting together for any of the upcoming Easter or Passover festivities. It’s a strange time to be on holiday when every day feels like yesterday in Lockdown. So we’ve put together a big basket full of great Easter gift ideas for after lockdown – when we’re free to invite friends over and explore the country once again (you’ve got to stay positive right!?).

Easter Lunch

Easter is a perfect time to gather friends and family together – especially when you’ve been apart from them for three weeks. Plan the perfect table for your post-lockdown get-together with these clever ideas. 

Serving ware 

Carrol Boyes table and dining accessories add personality and style to your home entertaining. If you dare, inject glamour and prestige into the ambience of your event by dressing your table with some of their unique dining pieces. Our personal favourite, the gotcha Salad Bowl. It’s a perfectly sized salad bowl for your dinner table. Use it to display fruit when not in use. 

Ceramics – Marble Range 

MOORS a lifestyle gift shop and online home decor store sell a stunning range of handmade marble dinnerware sets. These stunning marbled black, white and grey stoneware plate and bowls make every day dining unique. Clear glazed on top, unglazed underneath with the option of a gold lustre dot detail. Our personal favourite – the Ceramic Marble Plate.  

Dining suites 

Every home deserves the perfect dining suite, in fact, it’s a true hallmark of adulting. FurnitureMart provides dining suites, tables, and chairs with elegance to enhance your living spaces. Our personal favourite, the Michigan Table + 8 Colonel Pu Chairs

Post-Easter Travel Gear

Hopefully, post lockdown we’ll be able to hit the road and the skies again for those family vacations we were so looking forward to. Even if it’s to get out there on your own. I’m sure you’ve had your fair share of family quality time. 

You Can’t Go Anywhere without Luggage Right?  

Thule are probably best known for their sleek and secure cargo carriers that provide extra space, carrying everything from outdoor gear and luggage to stuff for daily life. But did you know they also sell a range of strollers, luggage and travel bags, roof racks, bike bags and racks, bike trailers, child bike seats, and laptop cases? Our personal favourite, the bike trailer – multisport and bike trailers help you make the most of your active life together with your kids, whatever the season and wherever you want to go. Use the Thule multisport and bike trailers to bike, stroll, jog or ski with your kids in style. They’re stylish, safe and versatile!

Slops – But Like Cool Ones

Does it get any better than making a fashion statement while wearing the ultimate in comfort? Australian designed, ethically sourced, PETA-approved, vegan-friendly and comfortable – these are a much have for your travel closet. Our personal favourite – the Miami pewter sandal, perfect for long walks by day, or dressing up that evening wear outfit. 

Inject the Bush into your Holiday Home

Melville & Moon is South Africa’s ‘retro Safari brand’. They manufacture a broad range of high-end handmade safari luggage, campaign furniture, canvas and leather safari accessories and safari-style seat covers which are made from 100% old fashioned cotton canvas. The combination of their signature heavy-duty canvas combined with leather represents the heart and soul of the safari era that the company’s products evoke. Our personal favourite – the Odyssey Bar, is this not the epitome of luxury safari!

A staycation – But when where you can leave your house

Perhaps hitting the road for a long weekend is not your idea of fun, and the idea of a ‘staycation’ at home is more appealing. Maybe lockdown has been the greatest, most relaxing time of your life. safe at home, with your kids, the world on pause. Nothing too wrong with that. But when you’re ready to get out there again (I’m sure the kids are bursting at the seams to get out a bit), we have some fun ideas for you!

Hit the Greens 

Get ready for a hole or two on the golf course with your friends. Golf Exchange is a great online shop offering the opportunity to both buy and sell golf-related equipment. They sell everything from golf clubs, apparel, shoes, bags, balls, and accessories. Our personal favourite, their range of golf clubs will suit every level of player. They have everything including Fairway Woods, drivers, hybrids, iron sets, putters, and wedges. 

Horse Around
